“Mr Derby County” – Eiran Cashin sends Louie Sibley message after promotion scenes



In light of the club’s promotion to the Championship, Eiran Cashin has dubbed Louie Sibley “Mr. Derby County.”

After defeating Carlisle United 2-0 last weekend, the Rams have won a spot back in the second division.

James Collins and Max Bird’s goals gave League One second place, five points ahead of third-place Bolton Wanderers.

Paul Warne’s team, who placed seventh in the table the previous year, earned promotion on their second try.

The Rams are now making plans for their return to the Championship, where they intend to stay for the upcoming season.

With their confirmation of the promotion last Saturday, Sibley shared a joyful message on social media with their fans.

Ahead of the team’s return to the championship, the 22-year-old emphasized the highs and lows the team has experienced in recent years.

“OLE’ OLE’, the Rams are going up,” Sibley posted on Instagram.

“What a sensation! What an incredible journey it has been, experiencing both good and difficult moments with each other in recent years, and now everyone is celebrating PROMOTION!

What a unique club!

“A truly amazing day for all those involved.” UP THE RAMSSSSS!

Sibley came through the academy system at Derby and cemented himself as a first team regular during the 2019-20 campaign.

Cashin has responded to his celebratory message, dubbing the youngster as “Mr Derby County.”

During the League One season, Sibley had 38 appearances, including 23 starts, and he tallied four goals and three assists (all figures courtesy of Fbref).

After completing the club’s youth program, he became a regular member of the squad and has been a vital component of the team in recent seasons.

Now that Derby is back in the second division after two seasons in the third tier, the midfield player will be looking to make an impression.

The end of the League One season

Over the weekend, League One’s regular season came to a close, confirming Derby and Portsmouth as the two teams that would automatically advance to the Championship.

Bolton Wanderers will now play sixth-place Barnsley in one of the play-off semi-finals after finishing five points outside of the top two in third place.

In the other semi-final, Oxford United will play Peterborough United, and the winners will play each other at Wembley Stadium for the third promotion spot.

Relegation to League Two befell Carlisle, Port Vale, Fleetwood Town, and Cheltenham Town, who were at the foot of the table.

Paul Warne

Warne pressure feels a long time ago

Early in the season, Warne faced pressure to improve on his performance or risk losing his job.

However, the squad had a really strong second half of the season to secure second place, so it seems like a long time ago.

It was very important to avoid the play-offs since it gave the team immediate opportunity to begin preparing for life in the Championship.

Derby’s summer spending budget is still unknown, but the Rams will need to recruit a few players to get ready for the higher caliber of play that the second division offers.
